Michigan DOE votes to add school days
Michigan’s State Board of Education voted unanimously that Michigan public schools districts that exceeded their six snow days should replace those days with full days of school. This is instead of adding hours to days remaining.
They stated the following “Full replacement days offer every student the full extent of quality instruction that they missed when the school was closed”, the board said in a statement. “This method allows teachers to complete their full lesson plans with integrity and provide students with the appropriate depth of instruction they need to meet their instructional goals for every class.” They added “This is the better strategy to ensure that students will be ready for career, college, and community.”
